    This is one of those times that I am surprised no one has done it before.

    I'm continually amazed by how well you can use a crappy baseplate :D Amazing work as usual. Did you find some way to attach the separate rings of the tower, or are they just held by friction (Or balancing?)

    Nannan, I'm desperately seeking a good technique for a round tower which I could cover in 1x1 tiles to achieve a tiled effect (medieval Iranian architecture is full of this stuff, and I think it's beautiful and have wanted to mimic the style for forever). This technique *looks* like it would support that, thoughts? And for smaller diameters do you do you still use the tank tread-based techniques, or have you adapted this one for those as well?

    I am speechless. Great job on this!

    This could work for your purpose, but the diameter cannot get smaller with this technique.

    Cool technique :)
    I'm curious on how the walls look "from inside" when the tower is assembled? Would there be suitable for building towers with interiors?
    And do you have any idéa for how to make windows and alike using this?
    Another variant is to use Hinge Brick's + Bracket 1 x 2 - 1 x 4 + long 1 x X plates with the 2x2 tiles on them (like on the tank tread-variant), I tried that in a CCCIX entry. It stuck togheter but wasn't extreamly stable (when I dropped on the floor it really shattered :P). This looks more robust to me, is it?

    (sorry for the flood of questions :) )

    Very nice. It also makes me think of a water wheel...
